Legendary Idol, Riviere

Functionally, the card as a whole is not awful. Unfortunately, this card suffers from the same problem as Coral in that the deck itself sucks compared to the better, faster, more explosive options. Extra power and Critical, plus drawing a card sounds okay, but the buildup is too slow for too little a payoff. You're going to find that in testing, your Rivieres aren't going to like being told where they want to go, so this is generally not a skill you'll want to shoot to use all the time, and unlike Arcadia Coral, Riviere cannot fix herself, which a huge point not in her favour. 

A rather chronic victim of crap-deck syndrome. Don't use this. Or if you must, use only for the extra card and Crit pressure.



See Coral? This is much better. Assuming the ride chain only, giving 3 units +5k isn't bad for a basic cost, and that number can be increased with skills that add more Rivieres to soul. Once you hit the second skill you're getting quite the reward; a plus 1 and a fat double critical vanguard to boot. Sure the old "pg or bust" adage applies to strides but in this era of G-guardians stepping up to try and cover for a lack of a Perfect Guard, a 36k 2crit that also beefs up the field is pretty nice.
